    My First Attempt at Making a Beat

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hello there,

    I'm completely new and here's a short sample of my first ever attempt at making a Hip Hop type beat. I am well aware that this probably sounds very amateur due to my lack of experience. I would love to hear your feedback on it (especially the sounds that I've chosen, the mixing and the arrangement, etc) and the things I can do to improve. Thanks in advance!

    I thought it sounded good! I can definitely see vocals going over it.

    Thanks for your encouraging words, CrowsofFritz. I really appreciate it. It gives me the confidence to continue making beats and hopefully improve at it.

    A promising start.

    At about the place where it stopped is where I would like to see some development taking place.

    Thanks gecko zzed for your feedback. I was going to experiment adding a new riff idea to the beat...I'll add it exactly where you mentioned. Thanks!

    Thanks ben_john7 for your inquiry about my beat. It is almost complete and I decided to keep it very simple. Now I just need to make some final changes to my Hihat patterns and master the track (BTW, I had to consult a few YouTube tutorials on proper Hip Hop/rap beat structure as I was totally clueless ). I will post the beat here as soon as it is completed. Thanks again!

    Below is the link to the final completed beat. I decided to keep it simple and did not add any additional parts or instruments.

    I hope that I was able to improve the beat from it's previous rough/incomplete version...Would love to hear your feedback on the instrumentation and arrangement as well. Thank you!
